Best Battery Backup Smartphones in India

Best Battery Backup Smartphones in India

Smartphones are a great companion. But what good is companionship if it doesn’t last very long. Which is why the battery backup on a smartphone is integral. A bigger battery doesn’t always mean a better battery, but at times that is also the case. A good battery is what most people prioritise while buying a smartphone. No matter how many features a smartphone may have or how well those features may work, if the battery is disappointing, people usually tend to stay away from the device. Which is why, in this listicle, we have listed some of the best battery devices that are available in the market right now:

  • Long-lasting battery life
  • Speedy performance
  • Versatile cameras

  • Charming design with matte rear panel
CONS:
  • Dated 60 Hz display
  • Slow charging
  • USB 2 data transfer speeds

The iPhone 15 Plus is the bigger version of the vanilla iPhone 15. Which means that the smartphone has the same powerful and efficient A16 Bionic chip, but with a bigger battery. Naturally, that means a great battery backup. Plus, this time around, Apple has also included a USB type-C port with the iPhone 15 series, meaning that we also get slightly faster charging and the flexibility of using just about any charger with the iPhone. We also get the Super Retina XDR AMOLED display with an FHD+ resolution. We also get only a 60Hz refresh rate on the iPhone 15 Plus display, which is probably the slowest on any phone above Rs 20,000, but it saves a lot of battery.

PROS:
  • Excellent foldable interface; great at multitasking
  • Impressive cameras
  • Sleek build and design; minimal crease
  • 67 W fast charging
  • Bright displays
CONS:

The OnePlus Open has one of the largest batteries in the foldable segment. The phone houses a 4,805 mAh battery with support for 67W SUPERVOOC charging (though there’s an 80 W SUPERVOOC charger inside the box). The battery life of the OnePlus Open is pretty good. The phone provides about 5-6 hours of screen-on time with moderate to heavy usage, which is pretty good. In our 4K video loop test, the OnePlus Open lasted for a good 14 hours and 42 minutes from full battery to empty. Half an hour of watching Netflix dropped the battery percentage by 4 per cent, and 15 minutes of Call of Duty: Mobile dropped it by 5 per cent.

Screen Size: 7.6u0022
Rear camera : 50 MP
Storage: 256GB
Battery capacity: 4400 (mAh)

The battery capacity of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 is similar to its predecessor. You get a 4,400 mAh battery but the uptick in the battery life is quite substantial. This is due to the improved efficiency because of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset. The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 easily lasts for a day without needing to be plugged in. In fact, after a day of constantly running benchmarks, clicking photos, editing pictures, watching videos, and browsing social media, the phone still has enough juice left by the end of the day. In our 4K video loop test, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold5 lasted a whopping 19 hours and 6 minutes. That’s almost 3 hours more than the Galaxy Z Fold4 lasted in the same test last year.

PROS:

  • Feature-packed OS
CONS:
  • Heating issues
  • Bad low-light photography
  • Not so bright display

Equipped with a massive 5,000 mAh cell, the Tecno Phantom V Fold 5G impressed us with its battery life. It is the only foldable in India to sport a large 5,000 mAh cell, along with 120 Hz LTPO panels, which is a boon since that also saves the battery. In our 4K video loop test, the phone lasted a whopping 16 hours and 18 minutes – beating out the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 but not the Z Fold5. If you’re a light user, you’re looking at a minimum of a day and a half of battery life.

PROS:
  • Brilliant cameras, Vibrant, responsive display, Good battery backup
CONS:
  • Underwhelming performance, Back panel is prone to scratching, fingerprints, Slow charging

Samsung Galaxy F54 5G comes with a huge 6,000mAh battery, which is one of the largest we get on smartphones these days. In terms of backup, the Samsung Galaxy F54 5G is very good. The smartphone only lost 4 percent battery after playing a YouTube video on full 2160p resolution on about 80 percent brightness for 30 minutes. Using GPS for one hour drained only 6 percent of the battery, and in our video loop test, the Samsung Galaxy F54 5G lasted 1303 minutes or 21 hours 42 minutes. That is an outrageous battery backup. In terms of charging, the Samsung Galaxy F54 5G supports 25W fast charging. This, in our 0-100 test, charged the device from zero to full in about 128 minutes or 2 hours and 8 minutes, not too fast given today’s standards.

PROS:
  • Stunning design, Good display, Brilliant battery backup
CONS:
  • Underpowered, Lots of bloatware, Charging feels slow

The battery backup on the Vivo V29e is brilliant. The smartphone comes with a 5,000mAh battery with support for 44W fast charging. The 5,000mAh battery unit gives the Vivo V29e enough juice for the smartphone to last more than 1.5 days easily, even with heavy usage. We tested the battery quite extensively. The smartphone only lost 4 percent of its battery while playing Call of Duty Mobile on the highest-possible settings for 15 minutes. In one hour of GPS navigation, the Vivo V29e lost only 6 percent battery, which is great. In our video loop test, the smartphone lasted a brilliant 1220 minutes which is more than 20 hours! That is brilliant battery life. The 44W fast charger, on the other hand, feels slightly slow as it took about an hour to charge from 0-100 percent.

Motorola Edge 40

PROS:
  • Premium and sleek design, 15 W wireless charging, Good primary camera, IP68 dust and water resistance, Vibrant and bright pOLED display
CONS:
  • Adaptive Refresh Rate doesn’t go up to 144 Hz, Inconsistent selfie camera, Not the best for gaming

Battery life was one area of concern on the Motorola Edge 40 since the smartphone houses a rather small 4,400 mAh unit, but the display size remains similar to the predecessor Moto Edge 30. So naturally, the battery life of the Motorola Edge 40 has definitely improved. In our 4K video loop test, the Motorola Edge 40 lasted a healthy 13 hours and 24 minutes. So, it outperforms competitors like the POCO F5 and the Samsung Galaxy A34. Similarly, during our review, it only lost 4 percent of the battery when streaming Netflix for half an hour and dropped by 5 percent after playing Call of Duty: Mobile for 15 minutes. This is not the best in the segment, but it is a solid improvement.

Further, Motorola has also bumped up charging speeds with the Moto Edge 40. You get a super fast 68W charger in the box that tops up the phone from empty to full in just 49 minutes and Motorola also added wireless charging to this segment, which is super rare.

PROS:
  • Stunning display, Very good camera performance, Beautiful design
CONS:
  • Too much bloatware, Feels slightly underpowered, Average selfie camera

The battery on the Realme 11 Pro+ is good. The smartphone doesn’t drain a lot of battery, even during heavy-duty tasks like gaming or GPS navigation. During our review, we played an HDR video on YouTube at full resolution and brightness, and the smartphone only lost 4 percent battery. 1 hour of GPS navigation only drained 5 percent of the battery, which is very good. The battery is good, the charging speed is even better. The Realme 11 Pro+ comes with 100W fast charging and I put this to test. Here, the smartphone charged from 0 to 100 percent in just 27 minutes. This basically means you can put your phone on charge in the morning and by the time you make your tea or coffee, or even brush your teeth, you will have enough juice to last a full day.

Moto G54

PROS:
  • Good performance for the price
  • Dual Dolby Atmos stereo speakers
  • Low on bloatware
  • Excellent battery life
CONS:
  • No AMOLED display, low brightness
  • Low light camera performance could be better
  • Only 1 OS update

Equipped with a 6,000 mAh battery, the Moto G54 has exceptional battery life. It is one of the longest-lasting smartphones in the market around ₹15,000. The 6,000 mAh battery combined with the relatively power-efficient Dimensity 7020 SoC means that most users will get at least two days’ worth of juice out of this phone. In our 4K video loop test, the Motorola G54 ran for 18 hours and 1 minute uninterrupted, which is fantastic. The phone only dropped 5 percent battery when running Google Maps for an hour, and 3 percent when playing 15 minutes of Call of Duty: Mobile. You also get a 33 W fast charger out of the box, which tops the phone from zero to full in about an hour and a half.

PROS:
  • Speedy performer, Excellent battery life, Vibrant and crisp display, 4 years of OS updates
CONS:
  • Dated-looking teardrop notch, Lots of bloatware, No HDR support on display, Primary camera’s dynamic range could be better

The Samsung Galaxy M34 5G has a monstrous 6,000 mAh battery. The smartphone can last most users two days without having to reach for the charger. In our 4K video loop test, the Samsung Galaxy M34 lasted an astounding 21.5 hours! That’s almost twice as much as the OnePlus Nord CE 3 Lite! Fifteen minutes of playing Call of Duty: Mobile only drained the battery levels by 3 percent, and that should show you just about how power-efficient this device is. If battery life is your primary concern, and your budget is below ₹20,000, then this phone is a no-brainer. However, do note that 25 W charging in 2023 is quite slow. The device charged from empty to full in a little over 2 hours.
